Izhora Pipe Mill receives remote API certification for the first time
December 15, 2020

Izhora Pipe Mill (ITZ, part of Severstal’s Russian Steel division) has again successfully passed an audit by the API (American Petroleum Institute) certification body. In a first for both parties, the 2020 audit was performed online.

The API audit is extremely thorough, and the Company spends over a year preparing for it to meet its exacting requirements. Following the audit, ITZ  received a certificate of compliance of the ITZ quality management system with  the requirements of API Specification Q1 and ISO 9001: 2015, as well as an API Monogram license for products manufactured in accordance with API Specification 5L requirements.

Alexander Semyonov, Director of Sales to Energy Companies, commented: “In spite of the current restrictions associated with the spread of coronavirus, Izhora Pipe Mill has successfully completed the audit entirely remotely. Possessing valid API certification significantly widens the mill's potential to  supply pipe products for international projects.”

Izhora Pipe Mill has also confirmed its compliance with the requirements for  expanding the certification area for API Specification 5L (Appendix N). This  will enable the Company to offer pipes  with higher strength properties for areas of active tectonic faults to its customers and, as a result, increase promotion of its products on the pipe market abroad.
